Dr. Barbara Ryan of Moms Making Six Figures Featured in 92127 Magazine

Thank you to 92127 Magazine for featuring Moms Making Six Figures partner, Dr. Barbara Ryan. Here’s a brief excerpt from the article, which you can read in full here.

Dr. Barbara Ryan, a surgeon of many years, chose to make a change in her career in 2010 for greater flexibility. “I enjoyed being a surgeon and caring for my patients immensely, however, the medical arena was changing and I simply didn’t have flexibility in my schedule that would allow me to balance my personal and professional lives; something many women struggle with,” said Barbara. “Also, my husband is in the military and has no control over where we get stationed, meaning everything I poured into building a surgical practice (time, energy, and money) could be wiped out with one phone call. Not only did I want more time to spend with my husband and also to care for my aging parents, I wanted to ensure that when I built up a substantial income it was portable, no matter where the military said we needed to be.”

Bay Leaves: January 2016

Ladies with strong ties to Whitefish Bay are now bringing their business to the area for our local moms to benefit from. The founder and owner of Momsmakingsixfigures.com is Heidi Bartolotta, who started the company in 2008 when her two daughters were both under the age of five, and the family was struggling after her husbands job had been down-sized. She was at a crossroads deciding if she should work outside the home, or if she stayed at home, what could she do to keep the family afloat. Fast-forward 8 years later and Heidi now was a team of women making six-figures thanks to the company she started.

One of these women is Jennifer Becker, who spends her summers in Whitefish Bay because her husband, Kurt Becker, hails from the area. Jennifer was looking for something that would allow her to work from home, but still give her that desired salary she had worked so hard to achieve in her corporate position. “Coming from the corporate arena with lots of work-related travel definitely did not give me the ability to make my two daughters my priority. Now I volunteer in the classroom, chaperone field trips, and still have income – the best of both worlds,” said Jennifer.

On how the company operates Heidi says, “Mothers today face so many pressures and questions, and the pressure to make the best decision weighs heavily on each of us. That’s where Momsmakingsizefigures.com can come in; we have a business model that has helped many women find their personal balance-point. Some women work 10 hours per week and others work 40, but each one gets to decide the amount of time that works for her and more importantly, when during each day she puts in that time.”

The flexibility of time was the biggest highlight for Jennifer to make the switch from the corporate world to the at-home lifestyle offered by Momsmakingsixfigures.com. “This is not a “get rich quick” thing, simply real women working together to create real income from their efforts. I would love to help you down this journey I have taken that has afforded me the ability to be at home with my girls,” said Jennifer.

If you or anyone you know are looking for something more, something different, Momsmakingsixfigures.com might be the answer you are seeking. “We developed a business model that requires no overhead, no inventory, and no selling,” said Heidi. Simply visit www.momsmakingsixfigures.com and submit a request for more information and a mentor, likely local Jennifer Becker, will contact you and help you get started on your new business.

When I started Momsmakingsixfigures.com in 2008, we had two little girls under the age of five and I was struggling. My challenge was trying to find the right mix of time and finances amidst all the demands that come with motherhood. Should I work outside of the home or decide to stay home, and what would that mean for my family’s financial situation? Mothers today face so many pressures and questions, and the pressure to make the best decision weighs heavily on each of us. That’s where Momsmakingsixfigures can come in; we have a business model that has helped many women find their personal balance-point. Some women work 10 hours per week, some work 40, but each one gets to decide the amount of time that works for her and, more importantly, when during each day she puts in that time. This is not a “get rich quick” thing, simply real women working together to create real income from real effort. If you or anyone you know are looking for something more, something different, we might be what you are looking for.

Marin Living: July 2015

The reality of raising a family in the Bay Area (or anywhere in California for that matter) is that it truly does require two incomes. Tamie Scranton knew that she needed an income, but she also wanted to be a mom who was present and available for her three children.

After the downturn in the economy, she was no longer able to count on her income from the mortgage business. She knew she needed to find an alternative means of creating additional income, but she wondered whether that could be possible while maintaining control over her time.

Scranton was introduced to Moms Making Six Figures in 2011 by her cousin, Angie Gange. Gange shared that she had found a way to create a six figure income and be at home for her three boys. Scranton quickly saw the potential of MM6F. She saw that she really could have both. “I am the mother of three amazing teenagers! I know that may surprise you… not that I have teenagers, but that I would describe them as amazing! Here’s the thing… I want them to stay that way,” Scranton said.

Scranton and Gange weren’t alone. Heidi Bartolotta founded Moms Making Six Figures in December 2009 with that very goal in mind; having time for her children without sacrificing the ability to generate significant income.

Previously, Bartolotta had worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative, but after having her two daughters, she no longer wanted to work late and travel; she wanted to be home. Bartolotta said her team is comprised of women from very different education levels, backgrounds and work-styles.

Scranton says: “Honestly, finding MM6F has been such a blessing. My husband’s career is very demanding and our children are very athletic, so it was important that I be able to adjust my schedule around their activities. And being able to support them and let them follow their passions has paid off! We have two children who are college athletes!”

Decatur Dispatch: March 2015

Tamara Lucas and Brittany Brown are two Decatur moms who have worked together in the wine and spirits industry for 11 years. Both women have degrees in social work and are passionate about helping others. For a long time, Lucas and Brown desired to develop an additional income stream that involved helping others while still maintaining their current, successful careers. They found such an opportunity in the company Moms Making Six Figures, shortened as “Moms”, and are now introducing it to the Atlanta area.

San Diego resident Heidi Bartolotta, founded Moms with two other women in December 2009. For the 12 years prior, Bartolotta had worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative, but after having two daughters, she no longer wanted to work late and travel; she wanted to be home.

To stay at home and also have a career, Bartolotta launched the company, seeking also to help other women get back to their families and either replace or supplement their income, depending on each woman’s life circumstances. Since then, Bartolotta and women like Lucas and Brown have grown Moms to a company of over 400 team members across the country and around the world. For about one-third of those women, their work with Moms has become their primary source of income. The other two-thirds work with Moms part-time, on their schedules, alongside their other careers.

At the company level, Moms is partnered with a U.S.- based manufacturer that makes home and wellness products that are safer for both the individual and the environment and at a competitive price. “Our job is simply to help people. First we educate them about the toxins that can sneak into our homes and about overall wellness. Then we provide a solution to help people reach their personal goals, whether they be related to physical health or financial,” Lucas said.

Team members come from all different backgrounds, education levels and work experience. “The great thing about this team is the incredible level of support,” Brown said. “We all work together to help each other reach our goals. We have fun together and we’re making a difference in so many people’s lives! And the ability to build my own business to create a significant, additional income stream while working from home in my spare time is amazing.”

For 15 years, Jennifer Becker worked in the corporate world. But after becoming a mom, she no longer wanted to work late and travel. She wanted to be home with her daughters.

“When I had my first daughter, I was still traveling and coordinating babysitters,” said Becker, who worked as a supply chain director, first in aerospace and then in consumer goods. “But when I had my second daughter, it just became apparent it was going to be a really hard career to maintain.”

After learning about Moms Making Six Figures, a San Diego-based marketing company that allows women to stay at home and either replace or supplement their income, Becker started with the company in October 2013. By January, she joined the company full time, leaving behind the corporate world for good.

“It was a very male-driven industry,” recalled Becker, who often had to travel across the country and around the world. “There wasn’t a lot of sympathy for women with children. There was always a lot of stress trying to juggle the kids. It was just really hard to balance.”

Becker isn’t alone.

While employment rates for women have been rising in other countries, they have declined in the United States, falling from 74 percent at its peak in 1999 to 69 percent today, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

In addition to the downturn in the economy, a lack of family-friendly policies appears to have contributed to the lower rate, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation/New York Times/CBS News poll of unemployed adults ages 25 to 54.

Sixty-one percent of women said family responsibilities were a reason they weren’t working, compared to 37 percent of men. Of women who identify as homemakers and have not looked for a job in the last year, nearly three-fourths said they would consider reentering the workforce if a job offered flexible hours or allowed them to work from home.

To allow women to work from home and either replace or supplement their income, local resident Heidi Bartolotta quit her job and founded Moms Making Six Figures with two other women in December 2009. Since then, Moms Making Six Figures has grown to more than 300 team members.

“The corporate environment is failing families, and moms in particular,” said Bartolotta, a former pharmaceutical sales representative, whose daughters are 9 and 11 years old. “That’s the people we cater to — families looking for an alternative way to create a similar income but have flexibility.”

Although the company launched in San Diego, there are now team members across the United States, as well as in the United Kingdom and Australia. Teams have long been established in San Diego County, Orange County and the Bay Area, as well as in Nevada, Arizona, Chicago and New York. New teams have also launched in Atlanta and Nashville.

Bartolotta said her team is comprised of women from very different education levels, backgrounds and work styles. Interested team members don’t have to have a marketing background, but they do have to have self-motivation and the desire to succeed because they make their own schedules and work from home, she added.

“The benefit of staying with a corporate company doesn’t have the pay-off anymore,” Bartolotta said. “You don’t have pensions and other benefits that companies gave back to you for investing so much of your life. That doesn’t really exist anymore for our generation. A company like ours is so applicable to people because they get to design, own and dictate their schedule and their life.”

“When I found Moms Making Six Figures, I was kind of in disbelief that I could still pull a six-figure income and really work around my kids’ schedule,” added Becker, whose daughters are 3 and 5 years old.

Over the last year, Becker has taken her daughters — now in preschool and kindergarten — to school every morning and picked them up every afternoon. She has gone on every field trip and been at every soccer practice.

“I was pretty much just coming in right at dinner and bath and bedtime, and that was it,” she said. “Now, I really get to be the person to pick them up and hear about their day. I calendar everything the kids are doing, and then I calendar work after that.”

Looking to expand her team at home and abroad, Bartolotta encourages interested women to contact her by filling out a form on the company’s website at www.momsmakingsixfigures.com/contact.

“Check it out and see if it’s for you,” Becker said. “Know there’s an alternative.”
